I missed this weeks Tuesday's tips as I have been working. Yes! I got a J-O-B.
Well, not technically a full time job, but I had some locum shifts. Let me fill you in on my first day
03:30am Wake up
05:00am Catch train from Somerset to London
06:10am Train in front of us breaks down
06:30am My train goes back in opposite direction
08:20am Arrive at Waterloo, 30 min late
08:30am Work starts. I am on a bus in heaven knows where.
09:20am Arrive at work
09:30am - 10:30am Ward round with a consultant
10:30am - 11:30am Do ward work
11:30am- 17:00pm Twiddle thumbs
17:00pm - 19:30pm Travel home
So that was Day 1. I had ten patients and not much to do. My youngest patient was 76, so it was a ward filled with decrepit geriatrics. My favourite!..........................................NOT!
08:30am Arrive at work on time
10:00am Have finished all my work
10:00am - 17:00pm Twiddle my thumbs
17:30pm Train breaks down..........seriously.....AGAIN.
20:10pm Get home, very grumpy
Am hoping that my next few shifts will go better, but beggars can't be choosers!
